Hi everyone!

I would like to one day teach English in a post-compulsory setting and so I have applied to the following courses:

- PGDE in Further Education at Liverpool Hope
- PGCE in Post-Compulsory Education and Training (with English and Literacy) at Nottingham Trent
- PGCE in Post-Compulsory Education at Oxford Brookes
- PGCE in Further Education and Training at Edge Hill

I am unsure about which course would be the best. Right now I'm definitely swaying towards Liverpool Hope for its location and for the potential Masters credits, however I'm still unsure about how I would rank the other three. Did anyone study any of these courses? If so, I would love to hear about your experiences, whether they were positive or negative!

Thanks

Hello someone-help-me

There is no standard or mandatory requirements for FE teaching. As a result each college has their own essential and desirable recruitment criteria. Therefore, have a look at the job descriptions of the jobs in the colleges local to you, that will hopefully help you to make a choice.

This might be a good resource for you too - https://www.feadvice.org.uk/

All the very best of luck
